Repair2ride would like to bring to your attention Simple cycle tours.
An exciting new venture offering low cost cycling breaks for the enthusiast.
Check out the following website www.simplecycletours.co.uk for more details of a weekend of riding in a friendly group with support. To include a stay in York and Whitby and the enjoyable opportunity to ride over the purple covered heather moors in the challenging North Yorkshire Moors on the 21st-23rd August 2015.
A new tour company is offering all inclusive road cycling tours without the hassle or steep price tag. Simple Cycle Tours take your bags at the start of the tour, put them in a support van and meet you at the end. Not only that, they handle all the accommodation and will be nearby should something go wrong and you need a helping hand.
The supported cycle tour is of course not unique, there are companies offering luxury tours in the Alps for upwards of £1200/week. However, the offering from Simple Cycle Tours embraces a more sociable and light-hearted atmosphere. By upping the numbers from around a dozen to fifty and providing shared accommodation in Youth Hostels, the price of a long weekend is amazingly kept to under £200. This even includes a high-quality tour jersey provided by Svelte Cycles – an exciting new cycling brand. With a barbecue on the Friday night, the tour gatherings allow plenty of opportunity to meet other riders.
The founder, John Wilson says, “For many road cyclists, there are two choices: travel in a loop from your start-point or carry minimal kit and endure odd looks when wearing sweaty lycra in the pub. We’re looking to bring the fun and adventure back into cycling and at the same time make road cycling more accessible”.
Simple Cycle Tours have their first tour from August 21st to 23rd, staying in York on the Friday and Whitby on the Saturday. While the organisers do the hard work, riders will be left to enjoy 199 miles of beautiful landscapes through the North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds at www.simplecycletours .co.uk.
I am the company founder and a very keen cyclist who has enjoyed cycling since the first day I sat on my first bike. What I love about cycling is the freedom and chance to go places under your own steam. Plus, it keeps you fit and helps to save money on fuel too!
